Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lily good to keep sun out
Great for apartments no nailing or damage to wood. My friend had them and she had them up for a long time. Easy to put up and in summer the black keeps the rooms cooler. I dressed mine up with scarfs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by mmh449 Look good and very inexpensive for the look.
The paper shades have to be carefully handled since they tend to wrinkle or crinkle very easily. Must be hung perfectly level.

They are a cheap and easy to install solution. They do work. Yes they have a clip to adjust and not pull string, but these are not intended to be pricey functional blinds, they are inexpensive blackout blind that you adjust your length and place a clip at where you want it to stop.
Had them up for about 6 months without problems, One corner of one of the shades has come loose but a little double sided tape patches that easy. These are installed by removing a sticky strip and you press and hold them to the top of the window. They are light weight and easy to install. Unfortunately after about 6 months of use 3 of the 4 shades have faded to brown from their original black, they were all bought and installed at the same time and no differences in shade / sun on them but the 3 faded and 1 has not. When initially installed you get a lot of the zig-zag appearance from the folding of the package, but if you leave them down at all times that does get lost and they will stretch out and look like lined paper in the window, still I don't think they are that unattractive but they are not $100+ blinds either. How ever you look at it, these are what they are and even now still do the job I bought them for which is block out the light in bulk, some light gets through but does block most and does help keep the room temp down.

Good low-cost alternative to custom expensive blackout blinds. For a good tight installation that doesn't bleed light at the sides, oversize very slightly when cutting (use a SHARP exacto knife to cut when folded). Also, if you want a solid blackest of black shade, double these up.

Great light blocker! I use it in the childrens bedroom, especially during the summer months when going to sleep is not necessarily dark out yet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by redmarisabel Effectively darkened our bedroom.
Our new house's curtains let far too much light from the alleyway into our room. While I've ordered drapes, they'll take a month to arrive. In the meantime, these were rapidly installed. In a way, they are giant post-its but far sturdier and with better stick. I can imagine these being wonderful for dorm rooms or any situation where you don't want to put holes in the wall or spend too much money. They are surprisingly sturdy for paper drapes.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ManhattanMommy Completely blackout - perfect for nursery!
These blackout shades are a fantastic value - they COMPLETELY block out light. Ideal for a temporary situation, to take on vacation, rooms where the curtains will usually be drawn. They are not very attractive (though not ugly) or durable, but for the price they can't be beat. I installed them behind nice silk curtains in my bedroom and my baby has never napped better. I highly recommend them!!
